The Guizhou pony is a native breed of the mountainous Guizhou Province in China where agriculture was developed as early as 770 BC. Relatively isolated geographically, these animals have had little outside influence and are an incredibly pure breed.


This breed was originally used for cultivation and transportation in the hilly regions and less so for agriculture, which is reflected in their smaller stature. There are two different types of this breed, one more suited as a riding horse and one stronger and used as a pack animal.
